Got today's numbers! A 28,239 MAU increase in a single day. Now at 141K since Monday, and 176K since March. We've crossed over the 413K MAU mark on the Mastodon part of the fediverse!
When users join the fediverse, the majority is coming to mastodon.social cause it's well known or their friends tell them 'bout ist.
Later on, they change the instance (or leave).
Many people who leave TW don't know 'bout Dezentralisation and the Behaviour in the Fediverse. it's totally new for them. 😀
@Gargron While other instances are experiencing massive traffic thanks to Elon Musk, for an entirely differerent reason, all Chinese language instances are experiencing a massive surge as well at this moment, with >6k new registrations on a single day as a result of all state-controlled social media requiring mandatory reveal of users' IP locations and hardened censorship.
@Gargron I keep checking the numbers on the about page on the instance I'm on. It is growing steadily.
It is a very different experience here now compared to when I first made an account in 2019. This time I think I will stick around. I want an alternative to the bird app, even if I do stay on both.
@Gargron Congratulations Eugen. I know you have put so much time and effort into this and I'm so happy to see this current wave.
